Psalms 109.6

 

Psalm 109, p. 29

Is the Chronicler thinking of a human satan, like the satans of 1-2 Samuel and 1 Kings?  There are also human satans in Psalm 109:  this Psalm is a typical complaint of a man against his enemies; he says that they have conspired to appoint a wicked man as a satan against him (v. 6).  May these and other satans be punished by Yahweh (v. 20), he says, and likewise all who “satanize” against him (v. 29).
